Tuition & Scholarships

We believe cost should not prevent deserving young men from receiving an exceptional education at De Smet Jesuit High School.

At De Smet Jesuit, we recognize the significant financial commitment made by our families. We also understand that each family has unique circumstances and abilities to pay tuition. To care for each student, we offer our Family Tuition Assistance program, academic scholarships, and named scholarships from our generous benefactors. We are here to help.
